[Educational Screen] "The film records the successful experiments in the resuscitation of life to dead animals, as conducted by Dr. S.S. Bryukhonenko at the Institute of Experimental Physiology and Therapy, Voronezh, U.S.S.R. According to the New York Times, the experiments are hailed by American biologists as promising a new epoch in medical science, 'bringing closer the day when operations now incompatible with life will be possible'."

"It's dead jim!" or "It's time to put on makeup, it's time to dress up right!"
Wow! Quite a little quack of a film which purports that they can bring dogs back to life, and keep living organisma alive. After being introduced by a VERY strange looking doctor, They bring into point a very strange exhibit of a heart beating on this open display (I wouldve covered it from the elements!) to a living lung. We then go even further and study a dog's head which they keep alive through this apparatus which looks strange to say the least. The dog's head is still alive! As they poke prod and do other neat little experiments. Of course it's still alive.. Havent you seen "The Brain That Wouldn't Die'? Then they attempt their greatest experiment. Draining all the blood from a dog and then.... wait! Then putting all of it back in again! Weee! All of this experiements really proves nothing. Unless, maybe for cryogenics purposes. You know, drain your body out, wait for like 15 years while your body is some how preserved. Take you out and put the blood back. This is playing God. But it's a GOOD Playing God (interesting that Dog is God backwards.. that could be taken a lot of ways..) A must see, but of course, not for everyone.
